I had an interesting week. It started off with my final interview with Brown. I believe it went well, but it’ll be at least six weeks before I hear from them. I really hope I receive an acceptance letter. It’s crazy to think this adventure has been two years in the making. Even crazier is there’s nothing more I can do. For someone with my personality, trust me when I say it’s hard to accept. My mode of operation is to never stop, but what can I do? It’s a waiting game.
So let’s talk about football. The Bears take on Dartmouth at home. Dartmouth has a storied history in college football. The first intercollegiate game was played November 16, 1881 when Amherst traveled to Hanover and lost. Dartmouth has 17 Ivy League titles and the 1925 National Championship.
For the purpose of this game, Brown has their hands full. Dartmouth is 7-1 and an 18 point favorite.
My Dawgs are taking on Auburn in the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry. In 118 meetings, dating back to 1882, the series is tied 55-55-8. Neither team is having a good year, but this game is always a showstopper. Add to that, my wife is an Auburn grad. In our eight years of marriage Georgia’s record versus Auburn is 6-2…so that I’ve got that going for me, which is nice.
Back to having an interesting week. I thought my work travel was over for the year, but it’s not. I’ll be in at the University of Virginia next week and in New York and San Francisco the following week. I LOVE the life of an entrepreneur! I know this has little to do with Brown, but as of late my business travel and my brothers foundation (the reason why I want to go to Brown) have been intertwined.
Sincerely, The Graduate (at Brown)
Update: Georgia beat Auburn 20-13 (make that 7-2 in my favor as we celebrate our ninth wedding anniversary next week) and Brown lost 34-18.
